We were a group of 10 people, the owner is really nice and the atmosphere is very friendly. They served our dinner in different courses and led us to taste almost everything they had, different cheeses, breads and the main course was maialine al forno! Good ratio of quality price. Recommended for couples

My wife and I went for dinner here during our stay in Padova, I was very excited after reading many of the reviews that qualify the restaurant as excellent but we were extremely disappointed after we finished what it was a very frustrating dinner mainly due to a unimaginable poor service. I made reservations for Wednesday, July 16 at 8... More

This place is fantastic, hidden away a bit out of the centre but definitely worth the trip (no more than 10 Euros in a taxi/10-15 minute walk). It specialises in Sardinian cuisine and rather than a menu you get a choice of meat or fish - we chose fish and were treated to 6 courses of fantastic, fresh and beautifully... More

Met my boyfriend in Padova for a business trip and we decided to eat dinner here, what a treat! We walked in, they had no menu, and we spoke little italian, but they took great care of us. They gave us two options to choose from, fish or meat, we chose meat.. It was fantastic, a six course, home cooked... More

We had just bicycled 105km from Verona and checked into our b&b which was just up the road from tio peep. No reservation. The waitress/owner and chef/owner were both remarkable. The Sardinian seafood and wine and beer were a taste sensation. We were looking for a bowl of pasta and found paradise. Try to get to tio pepes.

We arrived very late in Padova and were a bit hungry after a long check-in. Then we found this restaurant which was located among local living area and quite hard to find. We were greeted by Nina who was very warm and helpful and even more friendly to our kids and so was his husband. The food was excellent and... More

We made reservation on the basis of TA reviews. It is 15-20 minute walk from the town center of Padova, located in a non-descript strip mall. The restaurant however is cutely and nicely set up. Fresh herbs sit in vases on the small bar, ready for use in the kitchen for meal preparation. The owners were extremely nice and accommodating.... More

Overall: One of the best restaurant experiences I've ever had. Great food, great atmosphere, and great hosts. The restaurant serves traditional Sardinian food, so the menu is filled with fresh seafood. Although the owners do not speak much English, we were able to communicate by pointing and choosing what we wanted. As others have mentioned, the owners are amazing and... More

It began as a big mistake because I had seen the review about great pizza relating to this restaurant and that's what we felt like so off we went. There was no menu on the door , so we went in anyway , were greeted by a rather exhuberant waiter in a big black floppy hat with a friendly smile... More

We visited the restaurant during our honeymoon. Though the resto is not cheap, it's worth every penny! The food was delicious and the owner couple are really sweet people, very friendly and with a great sense of humour. Our night was a perfect dinner-show, this place is highly recommended!
